Test-drive league import at myfbg (1 Viewer)

If you're a subscriber and have a league at myfantasyleague, nfl.com, espn, cbs, ffpc, RTSports, or flea-flicker, we are working on a system that will allow you to keep your roster automatically synched. (NOTE: yahoo coming very soon. Sorry about the delay.)

If you have a league not hosted at one of those sites, we've also upgraded the system for managing the players on your roster (no more massive sea of check-boxes!)

If you'd like to test it out, go here: http://subscribers.footballguys.com/myfbg-for-shark-pool/my.php . If you run into any trouble, please post in this thread. Thanks!

 
Is it not currently tracking IDPs? I pulled up one of my leagues to try it and it is showing all IDPs as free agents.

 
Thanks Doug! No troubles for me importing MFL, CBS and ESPN leagues, though none of them are IDP. Good stuff.

Thanks for the info, snellman. Can you email me your email address and the name of the league ( drinen at footballguys.com ) . I'll look into it.

Cool. Just to confirm, when you do something like "create customized draft list" do you get a list of team names at the top that allow you to highlight each team's players?

Thanks.

 
Only have 1 league that drafted already and it was ESPN and imported all my players correctly. I also imported another ESPN and a fleaflicker league that seemed to sync up but got the message saying I haven't drafted yet (which is correct).

Question: Is this just a test page? Or will these settings be ported over to the regular MyFBG page once it goes live?

Edit: Just found one issue. I own EJ Manuel in one of my leagues that I ported over and he isn't showing up as on my roster on the "My Players" page.

Thanks steveski.

All the changes you make here are being registered in the fbg cloud, so they should stick when we do the full switchover.

Nice. Thanks!

Just wanted to make sure you saw this part of my post: "Just found one issue. I own EJ Manuel in one of my leagues that I ported over and he isn't showing up as on my roster on the "My Players" page." Not sure if that's a bug...

Right. I think I know what's up with Manuel. I'll see if I can't get him fixed up.

 
Where's the RT Sports import tool at? :shrug: I see the MFL one but not the others.

Thanks!
Gotta click the link in post #1, then click on "Manage rosters, or link your profiles with an online league"
I still don't see it. Looking for a way to sync dominator with Footballguys Players Championship
It's not a Dominator sync. It's a sync for your MyFBG page within your subscription service. It allows you to sync your league website with your MyFBG.

I also cannot find the link to import my NFL teams. Am I just missing it?
It's a MyFBG sync. Set up your various leagues on MyFBG and then sync them with your actual league websites.

This works great for those of you that don't use Draft Dominator to create cheatsheets or player rankings. These can be accomplished with MyFBG, if you so choose. I have had no issues whatsoever with syncing various leagues.....MFL, CBS, ESPN.

 
I am curious why you dont have rate my team linked to the FBG league you import. Sometimes a great tool to see how you stack up and would be easier than having to import each team.

 
Hi Doug,

It says that I do not have any league profiles. Do I need to manually create a profile before syncing?

Yes, you must first create a league (or leagues) within MyFBG to actually sync with your league website(s).

It tells you this, I am sure, when attempting to sync a league. Went to double check but I'm getting a simplexml_load_file error at the present time.

Thanks. One other quick question: Do the parameters of the league setup, like teams, scoring, etc. need to be accurate, or are those synched as well?

Me too.

Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in/home/football/public_html/subscribers/myfbg-for-shark-pool/myplayers.php on line 180

Crossing my fingers that FBG can get this fixed before the season starts. This will be an awesome feature if it works correctly!

Update - I tried logging out of FBG and logging back in and it's now working! :thumbup:

Everything from MFL should be synced when it is done. Would make it worth it.

 
Folks if your not using this it is probably the best feature of this site. Being able to see all my players, compare vs different teams and see them within the top 200 rankings and cheatsheets is extremely useful.

 
I have to agree that this is worth the subscription price alone to have all the data for you team consolidated in one place.

Doug, are there any plans to add additional services or are you guys done with adding more?

 
league 52590, the next button does not appear on the team selection page (already entered link and now at team selection page). i tricked it by hitting Tab and then enter :) so it works, but there is no NEXT button.
